MENO SCIENCE

Scientifically menopause is defined as the cessation of menses and the termination of ovarian follicular maturation due to loss of the ability of the ovary to produce estrogen in significant quantities. WOW! As a woman, I can assure you, these are probably not the first words of choice we would use to describe menopause to anyone (maybe the scientist was a man). Personally, I like to think of it as a way of connecting back with Mother Nature and utilising all that she can provide our bodies to thrive and heal from the time we come into this world to the time we depart it. The herbs in this range have been used for hundreds of years by different cultures around the globe. They have been thoughtfully chosen by our team of professionals and we have collectively combined science and Mother Nature to deliver you products that will do what they say they will do. Kirsty
